I thought I was going for a trek, but instead I went on a self actualisation trip. It had everything- fun, workout, snow, car journey, bonfire, and anything else you can imagine. Before the trip I was quite skeptical, whether or not I would be able to do it, whether or not the weather and conditions would be favourable, but it all worked out. Our trek guides, Bishu and Sasang, were both so amazing, so motivating, and so supportive, that they made our trip a success. At one point, I wasn’t sure if I could continue on this trek, since my legs were giving up, but our guide motivated us, told us we’re almost there, and made us complete the journey. We took shortcuts, we clicked pictures, we went 2km along the mountains just to see the beautiful sunset hiding in the clouds beneath us, and we came back changed. I recommend this trip to anyone who is reading this. The trek is for beginners with will power, and the journey is going to memorable for years, if not more.

The best thing about the trip was our guide Vikram Da..and we generally call him Vikram. He made sure to make us comfortable and ensured our needs to be taken care of. The only thing i would ask Thrilillophilia to do is club people of similar ages and not club a 55-60 yr old person with a group of youngsters. There are differences in mental and physical attributes.

Our trek was a remarkable experience. It was well organised and the accommodation along the way allowed for a very comfortable stay. The only problem which we faced was with the accommodation provided in Kalpokhari which was below average. The food was also quite good. I would personally like to thank the guide Mr Bisu Rai for helping us throughout the journey.

I have booked a cottage for our anniversary. It was having all the modern amenities. They have very well arranged a candle light dinner for us which was included in our package. We both had a great time at this property.

We enjoyed our stay in Darjeeling majorly because of all the hassle-free and advance bookings all credit goes to Thrillophilia. It was a beautiful resort with clean rooms and friendly staff. Enjoyed our tea plantation tours and exploring this beautiful city.
